This week in library we wondered. With kindergarten through 2nd grade, I read the book “Blueberry Shoe” by Ann Dixon while asking many questions. I asked questions about predictions based on the illustrations and before turning the pages. We reviewed what characters wondered in the book. . With 3rd-5th graders, I provided “I wonder” books and the website Wonderopolis. They organized in pairs. They were challenged to learn one new fact from the book and the website. We then shared our findings.
After the lessons, we discussed how the library is a good place to explore your wonderings. I also challenged all students to try to get out of their comfort zone and choose non fiction and fiction while in the library.
